New Walmart Card - Won't Let Me Pay The Balance

I just got a new Walmart store card and figured I would use it for doing the grocery shopping and PIF every month (we do our shop at the Walmart Supercenter so I'm going there anyway).

 

So I did the shop, went on the website later that evening and while it's showing my available credit as $75 (used $325 on a $400 CL), it has current balance as $0 and payment due as $0.  When I try to pay it, it won't let me.

 

Is this just the usual thing for the first month / until the first statement cuts?  It's a little irritating as if forces me to have higher util than usual and I'll take a fico hit for that, but it'll rebound.

You can pay in the store at any time and for any amount.  I frequently have a credit on my Sams card because I do this.

It's normal.  Most members on this board will force an electronic payment via their banks website.

I don't have a Walmart card, but I have other cards that do the same thing, it usually takes a couple of days for it to post and then you can pif without it ever hitting your cr.
